The Ultimate Power

Time. As runners, it is almost always about time. Do I have time to run? How fast was I? Did I set a new PB? How many more weeks?

I clearly remember my grade 10 English class in which Time was a common theme. “Time,” Miss Box taught us, “has the ultimate power over man.” Thirty years later, now more than ever, I clearly understand.

It’s the powerful but gentle tick that has taught me to juggle work, family and running so delicately. Some weeks, I do a great job; others, something starts to fall.

Last week was one of those weeks. Work was hectic, family duties were demanding and my running suffered. But nothing feel to the ground.

Here I am – at the start of a new week: different goals, a fresh start. Time can’t stop that.
